Guest Speaker for November 2010 Meeting

Our November guest speaker is Murray Hallam from Practical Aquaponics who have been supplying Aquaponics systems and equipment for 5 years. Systems have been installed in every state of Australia and exported to the USA. Murray Hallam regularly conducts Aquaponics seminars in Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide and more recently in Denver Colorado and Oceanside California.

Aquaponics is the successful integration of the best of Aquaculture and Hydroponics. The waste produced by the fish is used to grow the plants and the plants clean the water for the fish. The result is a balanced ecosystem where the gardener can enjoy both vegetables and protein for their table. Aquaponics can be successfully practiced in suburban backyards and larger scale farms or commercial enterprises.
